Two themes seem to really pervade at this year's event. The first was the huge increase in bio fermented technology and associated ingredients, while the second was the noticeable increase in new product launches from Chinese companies, many of which were from Guangzhou.
One example of biotech fermentation company was JLang Biotech Company, which was platforming a number of ingredients that it produced using its own brand of fermentation technology.
It was launching its Reallagen Collagen at the event, which is an ingredient that is highly consistent with human type III collagen and is said to provide long-lasting efficacy for anti-ageing and repair.
International and Chinese players showcased launches
A look at the launches at the dedicated New Product Launches area, between halls five and six, revealed that this year, the competition from China companies was hotter than ever, making the launch platform look more crowded than in previous year.
Croda was targeting the anti-pollution trend with its Optisol OTP-1 product, while Givaudan was highlighting a number of new products, including its Primahyal Ultrafiller and Colourback Darkenyl, a product aimed at reversing gray hair.
